    Both these guitars (594 and the DGT) have me drooling!!

    HOWEVER, im not really much of a trem guy but would definitely like to have the DGT pickups and control layout the Grissom PRS has.

    Is it possible to order a custom DGT (nothing fancy, probably just a solid color black or gold) with a 594 style 2 piece bridge and tailpiece without having to go private stock? If its going to cost an arm and a leg it probably wont be worth it to me.

    Would it be possible for PRS to get this done for something in the range of $3600 maybe?

    This would be my dream guitar!!

    No, and no.

    You could go private stock. It would cost a lot more.

    Or buy one of the hardtail DGTs? Maybe send it to the PTC for the two piece bridge?

    Naaa, pretty lax dress code up in here...just don't post any selfies of your attire or lack there of...and you're golden.

    Pretty sure d#;&k pics will make @[email protected] break bad...well, unless you're @sergiodeblanc because that's just how he rolls. He has the most likes on here and that rightfully comes with perks...like posting d#$&k pics...I mean...if you can steal PRSh car...in front of him...you're definitely above the law in here. Ahh, life goals!

    .

    Eric Clapton approves of blocking trems. That's the easiest way. Piece of hard maple and tap it in place, remove the trem springs and claws and you're on your way to hard-tailed goodness.

    Not to burst your bubble, but I think Shawn stands pretty firm on anything between the navel and the kneecaps...

    One can only hope Shawn keeps that as a steadfast rule...nobody wants/needs to see that.

    TBH....its more about the aesthetics for me. I just love how Doublecut PRS look with 2 piece stop tail and bridge
